Is a New Zealand Wine Vacation on your Bucket List?
From a proud agricultural heritage, New Zealand has emerged as a major producer of fine cool climate wines that are globally recognised and admired. With mainstream winemaking only gaining prominence in the late twentieth century, New Zealand has rapidly transformed former pastoral farming land into over 50,000 acres of high quality vineyards, many with significant vine age.
Renowned for its pungent Sauvignon Blanc, New Zealand also produces crisp Chardonnay and complex Pinot Noir to rival its European counterparts. Parts of the country are well suited to Bordeaux-style red blends and other regions produce aromatics of global distinction. New Zealand is a nation with a proud sporting and adventure heritage and this lifestyle can also be experienced during your New Zealand Wine Tour – as little or as much as you choose.
If you have an interest in global wines, you will frequently uncover wines made from New Zealand. This tour is your opportunity to learn about the regional varietals and New World winemaking methods. The tour offers frequent opportunities to taste and to purchase wines, and to listen to the viticulturists and winemakers who craft these wines, alongside sightseeing excursions, adventures and a level of luxury that will impress.
